ChristianMingle was launched in 2004 as a Christian dating site and is owned by Spark Networks, a company that also owns a variety of other special-interest dating sites. As the name suggests, ChristianMingle is solely directed towards Christians who are looking to date others who share their faith. To that end, a significant number of people will be looking for marriage.
With 10 million members and counting, it appears to be a popular site. The introduction page has a smooth, professional design. The website itself is easy to navigate, and a few of the singles are already shown.
Reviews of the ChristianMingle experience tend to be quite positive and there are plenty of anecdotes relating to couples who have found one another through the website. Indeed, the slogan ‘Find God’s Match for You’ is something many people on the site follow.
ChristianMingle is also quite good for those who are new to online dating. If you have never done it before, or feel like you need a bit of advice, there is a wealth of information and articles related to dating tips and how to find the perfect match.
Other interesting options that ChristianMingle offers include a feature which suggests matches for you. You will also have three options to choose from stating whether you like the suggested profile, don’t like it or want to ‘decide later’. If you happen to have any problems with the website afterwards, you can always contact their customer care centre. Users can also create favourite lists and send ‘Smiles’ to people that they like, sort of like a prompt to get a conversation going or at least to express interest in someone. The search feature isn't bad either!
